New D+Q: One! Hundred! Demons!

Are you as excited as we are about the new edition of Lynda Barry's One! Hundred! Demons!? We hope so! 

Reissued in beautiful hardcover by Drawn & Quarterly, Barry's seminal coming of age story, told in seventeen vignettes, remains some of her best work. In this master storyteller's deft hands, demons are confronted and the moments that haunt us -- heartaches, embarrassments, childhood memories -- explored. 

Inspired by a 16th century Zen monk's painting of demons chasing each other down a long scroll, Barry's stories flow into one another, painting the portrait of a life well examined, an introspection as precise and beautiful as the collages founds scattered throughout the pages.

Call it a work of art, call it a tour de force, call it (as Barry herself does) "autobiofictionalography." Whatever it is, it's pure magic.
